ROE Logistics, a Global Provider of Logistics Services, Selects TECSYS to Augment Customer Service and Support High Growth


MONTREAL, May 16, 2007 - TECSYS Inc., an industry-leading supply chain management software company announced today that ROE Logistics, a Montreal-based global provider of logistics services has selected TECSYS' warehouse and distribution management software solutions to support the Company's aggressive growth and deliver increased value to its clients across Canada and the U.S.

ROE Logistics' goal is to be the "Vital Link in their customer's distribution chain", offering innovative and fully integrated logistics solutions for international freight forwarding, warehousing and distribution. In addition, the Company offers end-to-end fulfillment, custom clearance and shipping of dangerous goods for its clients. Over the past five years, ROE Logistics has experienced 20% annual growth, making it one of the fastest growing 3PL providers in Canada.

"3PLs are a vital component of the value chain for many suppliers and key to the delivery of quality service to end users," commented Peter Brereton, President and CEO of TECSYS. "ROE's customers-whether distributors or manufacturers-will be further ahead as ROE deploys our SOA-based technology into their supply chain enabling closer collaboration with all stakeholders."

With a run rate of up to 2000 picks/packs per day, ROE needed a high-volume distribution and warehouse management system that would give the company the capability to deliver its services with confidence to its clients today, and would also grow with it and help the Company deliver that unique value that differentiates it in this highly competitive and constantly changing industry. Currently, ROE has some 450,000 square-feet of distribution facility space, strategically located in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver to serve its nation-wide customers. The Company also has offices in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Miami; operating under the name Paul Bellack Inc.

"TECSYS demonstrated significant value in support of our objectives of substantially improving our visibility into our supply chain and our management of customers' orders," commented Marcel Laurence, Executive Vice President and CFO of ROE Logistics. "There are a number of supply chain applications out there, most of them are too complex and expensive to deploy, particularly the integration with our existing technology and with those of our clients. Nothing that we have seen comes close to TECSYS' flexibility, modularity and integration."

With TECSYS, ROE Logistics will be able to:

Gradually deploy, as needed, TECSYS' supply chain software applications
Gain real-time visibility, without any barriers, into its inventory and movement of goods Substantially improve tracking and accuracy of inventory and customer orders
Service its customers with confidence and better manage customer backorders
Provide its customers flexibility in technological collaboration as well as clear visibility into their transactions
